Dress Code Policy

How students dress and present themselves during the school day is to be determined by the parents of the student.  It is the responsibility of the home to determine the fashion and manner in which they desire their children to attend school.  However, the school reserves its legal right to act individually concerning any student whose appearance may be inappropriate for the school environment, according to the PGCPS Board of Education Dress Code Policy.


PGCPS Board of Education Dress Code Policy:

  • Students can wear a headdress indoors for religious or health reasons only.  
  • Shirts and blouses should be continuous from the neckline to the waist.  The entire midsection should not show—also, no tank tops or muscle shirts.
  • No clothing, vulgar language, obscene pictures, weapons, drug/alcohol or drug paraphernalia, or tobacco products.
  • No identifiable gang/crew clothing or paraphernalia.
  • No see-through clothing.
  • Skirts, dresses, shorts, and spandex skirts should be approximately 6 inches below the buttocks or no shorter than fingertip level.
